Using off the shelf chipsets and servos for cellphones, remote control toys and other gadgets, you will build the prototype for a consumer product. With my financial backing, we will source it and bring it to market.

>What's in it for you?
>Interesting project. Reimbursement of all your costs. $5,000 for your time. 22% ownership in the startup (25% if you can source contract manufacturers; 30% if your design is so aesthetically pleasing that we don't need to hire a designer).
>How to apply: >Please send a listing of your skills, along with specs, photos and videos of gadgets you have worked on. Let us see your involvement in online communities by sharing your username. Brag about the things you could do (eg "build an RC car handled by a phone; a uav with wifi camera that follows you around; whatever). Tell us your favorite place to buy your chips and electronic parts.
>Basically just show us you have what it takes to design, source and build a gadget that could be mass produced.
